Shoin Building

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 31 August 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Major architectural entities in the garden include the shoin building which projects over the lake and adjoins the teahouse. Shoin was the residential dwelling developed for aristocrats, upper class monks and samurai during the 14th and 15th centuries. The exterior of this building is authentically shoin style, but the interior has been modified to provide a place for meetings and special events. This room offers a panoramic view of the garden.
